#microstory "Elroy Unhinged"

"I want to do it my way," said Elroy.

"You don't always get your way," said the barista.  Elroy stormed off, his tailored (yet still cheap) suit flowing behind him.

Elroy got into his SUV, and a voice came over the loud speaker.  "You can get what you want... always...for a price."  A purple aura glowed in front of Elroy.

"All you have to do is honk twice."  Without thinking, Elroy honked twice.

Elroy found he got his way after that, but there was a price...

A black devil showed up at his doorstep late one night.  "You will always get your way, but I get my way too, servant."  Elroy panicked, but there wasn't anything he could do.  If he hadn't been such a goof,  he would have remembered Doctor Faustus.  But he didn't, so he failed to heed its advice.
